I "I hardly understand you, my dear."
I, replied Aunt Jane.
I "Mr. Jesso opines that he and I are
s, kindred spirits," explained Mrs. Merri
1. wid. "He bases his opinion on his
it assurance that he has the same tastes,
it ideas and convictions that I have. He
looks at everything in the same way.

o hands by my side if he had a chance

ir wouldn't disapprove of my smoking.

t. tleman in Mr. Wells' books. He has
te my ideas on polities and my ideas of
ie religion and high-heeled shoes, and it
we were married, our companIonsm
would be so perfect that we would
neither of us need to say a single
word. We'd just think and then nod e*
our heads at each other. No friotio a
no argument, no rows and no mak
ing up agalin"
"It would be a peacefl existeno"
said Aunt Jane.
"It would be the very next thing to
the silent tomb-if it lasted; but to
get right down to brass tacks, it sel
dom does last." said Mrs. Merriwid.
"Spirits that are too kindred for any
use before marriage soon meet lelk
strangers, afterwards, and yoa can't
tell beforehand what form of disagree
ment you have to depend on to while
away the dragging hours. It's as im
portant for married people to disagree
upon the right things as it is for them
to agree properly. You paste that in
side your best hat, dearin The great
thing is to learn to tolerate and even
enjoy the stupidity, childishnes
weakness, narrowness and blindnes
of your mate, and prefer them to the
wisdom, liberality and insight of any
body else on earth. That makes the
happy marriage, auntie."
"Well, I suppose yod1 think you
know, but in my opinion you are to
tally and willfully mistaken" said
